About Linda Roberts & Associates

Linda Roberts & Associates is an award winning nutrition and food service consulting firm influencing long-term care providers in Chicago and throughout the United States for over 15 years.

Linda Roberts started with the development of up-to-date regulatory compliance tools for professionals and staff to provide nutrition care to residents of long term care communities. Over time our tools have been amended to comply with regulatory advancements and client choice.

LRA’s business philosophy is to enhance the facilities served. Every company offers the community a unique service that has resulted in the success of that business. In working with clients LRA seeks to identify the strengths of the organization and build upon them.

Leading Long-term Living

The baby-boomers have officially reached 65 years of age. Their philosophy of “I want it all and I want it now” has hit the long-term care industry prompting a dramatic change in nutrition care and meal presentation. Restrictive diets are out and informed choice is in. Hospital style meal trays have been replaced with restaurant style dining. Nursing homes have morphed into sub-acute rehab centers often affiliated with a continuous care retirement community (CCRC).

Linda Roberts & Associates is leading the way through strategic representation on committees, task forces, and boards. Linda Roberts currently serves on the Pioneer Network’s Clinical Dining Standards Task Force representing the nutrition professionals of the American Dietetic Association. This Task Force, comprised of representatives of clinical health care associations (including CMS), is dedicated to the advancement of resident choice in all aspects of life including evidence-based individualized meal service and nutrition care.

There’s no pleasure on earth that’s worth sacrificing for the sake of an extra five years in the geriatric ward of the Sunset Old People’s Home, Weston-Super-Mare.
